Wolves discover potential Europa League opponents

Wolves and Olympiacos have discovered their potential opposition in the latter stages of this season’s Europa League following the draw for the quarters and semi-finals.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are currently tied at 1-1 with the Greek champions in the round of 16 stage ahead of the postponed second leg, which will now take place behind closed doors at Molineux on Thursday 6th August at 8pm.

The winner of that tie will travel to Germany for a 10-day straight knockout tournament later in August to decide the Europa League champion for 2019/20.

At the quarter-final draw, which took place at UEFA’s headquarters on Friday afternoon, the winner of Wolves vs Olympiacos will face the victor of Seville and Roma, who are yet to play their last 16 first leg and will instead play a single tie in Germany. This game, Quarter-final 4, will take place on either 10th or 11th August.

If Wolves were to make it through to the semi-finals, they would take on the winner of Quarter-final 2, which will either be Manchester United, Lask, Copenhagen or Istanbul Basaksehir, on 16th or 17th August.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, matches will take place at four stadiums in Germany from the quarter-final stage; MSV Arena in Duisburg, Dusseldorf Arena in Dusseldorf, Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen and Stadion Koln in Cologne, which will be the new host of the final.

Instead of two-legged ties, each match will be a single knockout fixture, which will go to extra time and penalties if necessary, to decide who moves through to the next round.
